Proud of Pride


Whoa what a weekend. Pride 2011 was on Saturday and was a total blast. Although I did end up going to the wrong park to begin I ended up in right place. I invited my friend Sue to come along with me.
She loves her photo being taken.

My gazebo was a total Gong show and we thought FOR SURE we were being Punk'd trying to get that thing up. I was in stitches before we even began.

THEN I had breakfast/lunch AND dinner all in own sitting.


A proper foot long.. I thought these long existed in New York!!!!
(oh yeah btw welcome to the 21st century NY)


I didn't manage to get a photo of my stall at the beginning.. I apologize it looks so bare! It was good because I realize what I am missing which is MORE levels which I hope to gain by my next stall experience.






I think  my favorite customers were two clowns!




Doesn't her flower look nice????


All in all it was a great day. Sue and I are scheming for next year already.

  1. Wow! I just came across your blog whilst looking for resources to help a friend from LiveJournal figure out how to do kanzashi... Because I linked an image of the rainbow-coloured kanzashi flower I made to wear to Pride here in the UK this Saturday! It was my first attempt... http://metahusky.net/~snoof/sewing/001.jpg That's why it's lopsided and too small (or that's my story, anyway). At any rate, I'm going to make a new one from the same fabric (I might make it so big I have to intersperse rainbow petals with different coloured ones - I'm thinking maybe red, or a really colourful fishy fabric I happen to have lying around, because I only have a scrap of rainbow left).

    I just find it really funny that, as a direct result of my making a rainbow-coloured fabric flower for Pride, I came across your rainbow-coloured flower for Pride!

    I did get better, by the way... Attempts 2 and 3 are here: http://metahusky.net/~snoof/sewing/002.jpg By the time I made the pink-and-blue one I think I really got the hang of it!
